- My body shouldn't be fat.
- Is that true?
- And, is it?
- So what's the reality of it?
- It's fat.
- And how do you react when you think the
thought "My body shouldn't be fat", and it is?
- Sad, angry, depressed.
- And who would you be without the thought
"My body is fat"?
- I'd definitely be free from this thinking so...
- So close your eyes and imagine you with your friends, imagine you going to work, driving in the car, whatever it is, whatever your life is like -
imagine your life without the thought "I'm too fat".
- Wow. It's beautiful.
- I saw lots of laughter and connection, it was beautiful, I was present and I was able to really engage with people.
- You got to see you the way we see you.
- Welcome home to your beautiful self.
- Thank you.
- That's how we see you.
- It was great freedom.
- So notice the difference with the
thought and without the thought.
- With the thought, the image is being in a coffin, alive, and dirt being shovelled down on me.
- Without it, is sunshine and freedom. And love.
- So is your body bringing on your misery, or your thoughts about your body bringing on your misery?
- Right now I really see that it's my thoughts, and I didn't believe that before.
- One hundred percent of your misery is brought on by your dishonest, unconscious thinking. That's what a lie feels like.
- "I'm too fat" - turn it around. Can you find another turnaround?
- My thinking is definitely too fat.
- Yeah, feel how heavy it makes you!
If you're a hundred pounds and you think you're too fat, you imagine yourself at a hundred and twenty, a hundred and fifty, two hundred.
It's not about the body, it's about imagination. Imagination allowed to run wild because it doesn't have the question "Is it true?" to stop it,
so that it can reconsider, so that it can bring itself to sanity. And sanity is a word I equate with love, with intelligence and maturity.
An immature mind is a mind that hates itself.
